The following is a message from Min. David Wilkerson called "You Cannot Carry Your Own Cross" followed by a video sermon from Min. B.H. Clendennen entitled, "Self-Denial".


You Cannot Carry Your Own Cross

It's very true that Jesus said to His disciples, "If any man will come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross, and follow me." But Jesus could not carry His cross - and neither can you! Jesus fell under the load of His cross, weary, exhausted, and unable to carry it another step. John said, "And he bearing his cross went forth into a place...called Golgotha" (John 19:17). the Bible doesn't tell us how far Jesus carried His cross. We do know they compelled Simon, the Cyrene, to pick it up and carry it to the place of crucifixion (Matthew 27:32).

The Strength To Forgive

I believe that there are many of us in need of forgiveness, and there are many of us with a dire need to seek God for the strength to forgive.

Strength to forgive everyone their trespasses. Strength to forgive all... And then we need to ask the Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus that He would keep us walking in that strength to forgive all by the power of His Spirit. So as the Heavenly Father loves us, and forgave us all trespasses against Him... even the cost of crucifying His only begotten Son... Even as Jesus our precious Savior forgave us all trespasses, and continues to forgive us daily when we ask it. So should we be willing to forgive. I would submit that many of us even have a need to consider the reasons we forgive. Are we forgiving because we are truly sorry for the things we've said or done? Is our forgiveness genuinely born out of conviction, brokenness, humility, a love for our brothers and sisters in Christ, and our love for God? Or are we forgiving for religious reasons. Simply because we were taught it's part of the Christian image, its what Christians are supposed to do? Or are we forgiving for self-centered reasons? So we can have a pleasant afternoon, or go to sleep with a clean conscious...

Are our motivations about God or about self?

Nothing Caught God Off-Guard

Be not dismayed. God has everything under control.

The Land Mourns

Leviticus 18
24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

Leviticus 18
27(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

Like my friend that posted about this video, I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the events described in these news reports below, but when I saw the video I immediately started thinking about the Scriptures. The shedding of innocent blood brings judgment upon the land. Homosexuality brings judgment upon the cities. God tells us that man's sin can become so prevalent and vile that it even defiles the very land in which we live (Numbers 35:33-34; Jeremiah 2:7, 3:9, 16:18; Ezekiel 36:17). As a result, creation itself tries to spew out man and his evil ways.

The Rapture

1 Thessalonians 4
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

I don't know how everyone else feels about this, but I continue to pray as Jesus said in Luke 22:36 that I, my loved ones, and all those that I encounter and share the Word of God with (even those that would be considered enemies) would be counted worthy to escape....

The Wind And The Wheat

Luke 10
2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

Holy Wind, Holy Fire

Go Through The Gates

Isaiah 62
10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.

Let The Wind Blow

Upon the solid rock of God I stand...
